We mentioned earlier that modders were in the process of porting a snowy Arma 2 island called Namalsk into the DayZ. Last week, the map's creator published a pre-release version of Namalsk, which you can play by downloading it directly or through a utility like DayZ Commander. Fat with curiosity, I jumped into the chilly forest island to have a look around.
You knew that DayZ has custom maps, right? As Bohemia labors away on the standalone version of DayZ, modders have been busy porting user-made Arma 2 islands into the zombie survival mod. The varied biomes of Fallujah, Lingor Island, and Panthera are all playable on custom servers, and a click away from being installed through the handy, PCG-recommended DayZ Commander utility.
Joining these maps next could be Namalsk, an arctic forest covered in custom structures like reinforced defense towers.
